Found this in the internet. And this stuff is pretty amazing. Should be a sympho metal version of "Lux Aeterna" song from the soundtrack album.

Unfortunately i am unable to identify album/edition which the song comes from. An Mp3 files from different sources do not contain "Album" tag. An apocalyptica discography from wikipedia does not contain this track. Also i could not find any lossless-encoded file.

This makes me doubt. Has Apocalyptica actually recorded this song? Can it be a bonus track from some rare edition? Or, maybe this was produced by another artist and labeled as Apocalyptica by mistake (yeah, this kind of mistakes happens sometimes).

UPD: The same track also can be found in Hans Zimmer playlists, but again, without any useful metadata.


So far, I found no evidences on Discogs or Wikipedia or Spotify that the band Apocalyptica is related to the song Lux Aeterna composed by Clint Mansell.

I think it is some kind of Mandela effect that probably started when someone posted a non official trailer of the movie Apocalypto that features that music. Someone else posted another non official Apocalypto trailer mispelling it Apocaliptico.

Now you can find many references on youtube, or illegal stream or download websites but it is probably mispelling and/or mistagging.

An other version that can be found and some times called Requiem for a Dream (Orchestral Version) is in fact an extract from the album Requiem for a Tower, where the original 4-strings song is re-recordred with a choir and full orchestra.

Here is a Spotify link to the official track.

  • Thank you, but the track what i'm talking about is not the exactly from Apocaliptico. We can hear Clint Mansell's Lux Aeterna in the trailer, but my question is about some kind of cover on it, performed in totally different genre. – Diligent Key Presser Dec 22 '16 at 2:19
  • Here it is tagged as Hans Zimmer's track: soundcloud.com/weeshing/hans-zimmer-requiem-for-a-dream It is pretty much different from the original performance. – Diligent Key Presser Dec 22 '16 at 8:35
  • @DiligentKeyPresser, It is just a bad naming for the user, as some comments said. The orchestral version you are referring to is from the album Requiem for a Tower recorded with choir and orchestra. – Bebs Dec 22 '16 at 9:03
